"Distribution" is T2 SDE, http://www.t2-project.org, with up-to-date

rEFIt/Grub here. But LILO should not matter. Btw. as you see by using LILO
you get BIOS emulation thru rEFIt without the OS X thing called Boot Camp
as LILO/Grub only works via the BIOS ...

No idea. Either your hardware is indeed slightly differing or some package
versions do not play that good together.
